Disneyland Trip Pt. 1

We got back about a week ago from Disneyland, and I decided I'd better blog about it right away before I lose any motivation! We had such a good time. We left on a Friday night and stayed in St. George, and left at 5:30 the next morning to Grandma and Grandpa Hackett's house. We got there around noon, and got to spend some quality time with them. My grandma asked me to sing in church the next day, even though I didn't bring any music, and arranged everything before I could say no. She then got really sick and ended up in the hospital, and missed church. Part of her intestine was blocked, so she had to have a surgery, but is doing much better now. We then went to a hotel on Monday and spent the rest of the week at Disneyland and the beach. I warn you- there are lots of pictures, which is why there are two parts to this post!

Day 1- okay, it's amazing how much faster Randy walks at Disneyland! He was zooming all over the place, and never seemed to get tired.

The tram is my favorite.

The Matterhorn!! Love it!!

Mom and Lizzie on the tea cups.

Me and Randy on the tea cups.

Look how strong I am!

Look how strong Randy is!

We went to Minnie's house, and she was gracious enough to let us take a picture with her. What a nice mouse.

Mickey let us take a picture too, but got mad when we slouched. I think he was offended because we thought he was short.

On the Jungle Cruise with the best tour guide ever! Really, he did a great job. Very into character, and weird, and we liked him.

Randy is giving me mouse ears, but covered his face. I included this picture because Kristen and Spencer were with us.

Disneyland Trip Pt. 2

On Mickey's Fun Wheel (Ferris Wheel). The first time we went on it, we went on a non-moving car. That's why I'm not crying in this picture.

Lookin' mighty fine in our Bug's Life glasses.

Jamie was soooo excited to go on Soarin' Over California! It was probably her favorite ride- but then they wouldn't let her go on it again because she was "too short". So how did she get on it the first time when they measured her three times???

We can't wait to go Soarin'!

Randy took this awesome picture of Mickey's Fun Wheel in California Adventure. Go see World of Color- it's fantastic!

We love this ride :) Faces=priceless. Randy might start crying.

Lizzie and I on her favorite ride- King Tritan's Carousel.

Davis fam, Hackett fam, and Hoffman fam. The lady that took our picture was named Kristen, and I yelled for my sister Kristen, and she responded by taking a picture :)

Travis? or Dad? in the water with Randy at Huntington Beach. I'm so glad Randy had people to go and be in the water with! I don't like to go too far out.

Ethan- sporting his sandy diaper bum.

Awkward beach picture, but we like it.

Randy, riding on the old fire truck on Main Street :) Yeah, he's cool.

Blue Bayou

Oh. My. Gosh. BEST salmon I have EVER had in my life! We ate at the Blue Bayou (in celebration of our Nine Monthiversary, but really, we just wanted to eat there) and it was amazing! It was the most expensive meal we've ever had, but it was so worth it.

This place was so cool! It is in California Adventure, and it's called Off the Page. They had all sorts of fun things to do- like learning how to draw like animators, talking with Crush the turtle, and voicing over animation. So fun!! It was a new discovery for us, and we will definitely go back there.

Here we are, sporting our awesome "Honorary J.R. Firefighters" stickers :)
